Froch/Ward- Who Wins?

After beating Glen Johnson, Froch is now set to face Andre Ward in the Super Six final. This should be a fantastic fight. Froch and Ward are arguably the 2 best super-middleweights in the world and in their prime.

Ward is a slick boxer with a willingness to brawl. Ward also adapts well under pressure as he did against Abraham.

Froch is a rough tough brawler with underated and ever improving boxing skills.

Abraham had limited success against Ward by pressuring him early but Ward was able to adjust. Froch should take note of this. If Froch can maintain consistent pressure, Ward is in for a rough night IMO. Froch has the better chin and greater power. If Froch keeps Ward on his heels and forces the exchanges the advantage goes to Froch.

I expect many heated exchanges in this fight. Ward's handspeed and defensive skills will give Froch fits if Froch allows the fight to become a measured battle. I think Froch will force the issue and eventually put Ward to sleep.

ward is just too skilled and too quick for froch. except for bute, i just can't see anyone else in the SMW div beating him. ward reminds of hopkins in that, he has all the craftiness and knows all the little tricks in the ring to go with the athleticism.
